, you do step back and say mitt romney became the tea party. >> that's right. he has adopted the agenda fully. the ryan budget has gotten a lot of at attention, but a lot of other items that they have been passing really reveal what the agenda is. restricting women's right to get an abortion even if they are dying or have been raped. allowing people to carry concealed weapons even if they are drunk. >> eliot: it is shocking when you look at it and it is the todd akin social agenda republican party. even though everybody pretended to recoil in shock when todd akin made his horrific comments they went on to embrace his agenda. what me taste sized against mitt romney was he didn't have the forty tuesday to say no i'm not going there. >> yes. and they tried over and over again, they ran one candidate up the flag pole after another. is >> eliot: when you look back at bill clinton who we look at as one of the great politicians of the past 30 or 40 years, his sister soldier moment was when he went to the base and said i disagree with you about this. it showed a certain force of characte

the impact on the people out there watching is right here. it has nothing to do with what you say even how you say it. there are fears in the obama campaign that because of the personal disdain that he has for mitt romney and how mitt romney has handled about the campaign, they're worried about the president snarling or being angry. they're trying to get him to say look you know the material. if you're going to attack him do it be a smile and a glimmer in your eye and you'll be fine. >> eliot: then senator obama's toughest moment in his run for the nomination was when he turned to hillary clinton and said you're likable enough. there was an edge to it. people pulled back and said are we seeing a different side of no drama obama than we actually appreciate. >> yeah. i think for the romney campaign because mitt romney had all of the practice -- not only four years ago but also the run-up in the primaries romney has a pretty good poker face. this is a guy who can look at you and he won't give anything away. that may be something of an advantage for mitt romney in terms of the emotion
